Sukkot

Sukkot celebrates both the fall harvest and our deeper connection to nature.  It is a joyous season that symbolizes our people’s redemption and God’s protecting presence as they wandered through the wilderness.  Sukkot is one of the most physically beautiful holidays because of the sukkah (temporary booth) that we decorate with symbols of the harvest, and the lulav and etrog, which we shake as we pray for a good season 
of rain.

5:00 pm ECC Tot-Sukkot Service

We are thrilled to invite our students and families to our Klein courtyard this Friday at 5:00 pm for our ECC Sukkot service and dinner.  Join Rabbi Jaffe, Cantor Sternlieb and Hope Blauner in the sukkah for an age-appropriate 20-25 minute service with plenty of singing and dancing.  Then stick around and bring your own picnic dinners to enjoy in our courtyard.  Arts and crafts tables will be available for decorating the sukkah and the playground will also be open for our students.  

The larger congregation will join us for more sukkah decorating at 6:00 pm and a Sukkot service at 7:15 pm, so feel free to stick around as long as you like.  Should rain be in the forecast, we will move the service and celebration into our social hall, with social distancing and masking.  But we hope to celebrate Sukkot as it was meant to be – outside.
